Combining RDTs Determines Dengue Immune Status

Dengue is an emerging arboviral infectious disease (DENV), transmitted through the bite of an Aedes mosquito that burdens much of the urbanized tropical and subtropical world. Current dengue diagnostics are primarily concerned with capturing active infections, thus no such method exists for determining primary or post-primary DENV infections, at the point of care. More...

Rapid Result Test for Complicated Urinary Tract Infections Proves Superior to Standard Urine Culture

Complicated urinary tract infections (cUTIs) are a significant burden on individual health and healthcare resources that must be diagnosed and treated early and accurately to reduce the risk of poor outcomes. Now, an advanced rapid result test better addresses polymicrobial infections in difficult cases, where bacterial interactions can impact antibiotic resistance. More...

Platelet Indices Are Associated with Syphilis Activities

Syphilis is caused by Treponema pallidum, which is a chronic sexually transmitted disease that has highly variable clinical courses and manifestations from a painless chancre to severe damage in the brain, heart, and other organs. More...

Urinary Microbiome Linked to Prostate Cancer Risk

Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin malignancy in men in developed countries, with over 250,000 deaths annually worldwide. The clinical course of prostate cancer is highly heterogeneous, and critical decisions are made about the likelihood of aggressive disease based on information obtained at presentation. More...

New Raman Spectroscopy-Based Method Detects Infections in Cystic Fibrosis Patients in Minutes

Researchers have developed a new chemical analysis technique called multi-excitation Raman spectroscopy that has the potential to detect infections in cystic fibrosis patients in minutes rather than days. More...
